My budgies are usually quiet at night. But one a rare occasion they will chirp at night, especially if I have light background music on. One time one them started yelling, followed by a night fright. But this is different. My budgie starts "singing" as if he taking a nap instead of drifting off to sleep for hours in a row. It's really weird. Sometimes I think he is awake cause when I tell him to stop chirping, he stops.. only to start again. It's pitch dark in the room but I have a small night light on.
They do that sometimes. I think I've had mine do it in their sleep, and also because they are awake at night sometimes.
The only thing that scares me with them at night is night fright's which you have addressed with the nightlight. I wouldn't be concerned...
He came down from Heaven unto this earth below
He came down from glory and praises untold
He came down to man fashioned in their way
He came down to rescue, He came down to save
Ace will do this pretty often when I cover him up and I'm still awake. I think he is trying to do "birdie snoring" to pretend he is asleep .
I think he is thinking, "If I pretend I'm snoring, daddy will think I'm asleep, then I can sneak out later and eat some millet before he wakes up"
Thank you Deb for the wonderful photo!

Awww. I always found a Sleeping Singing Budgie Adorable! My Budgie talks in his sleep for about 30 minutes after going to bed. I find it relaxing to hear him say every word and phrase he knows while slowly getting quieter and quieter. Sometimes he will wake up during a nap and meow right out of the blue. Always cracks me up seeing a Budgie wake up and sound like a cat right off the bat.
I do hope you both find a peace. The chirping can be hard especially if you are very tired.
Yes it is fine, Budget sleep talks all the time, if the TV is on he will come to life if music is played. he often sits with his head tucked in on my shoulder and talks away or if the other two make some comment he always responds. It is cute.
